Sunflower genome sequence provides road map for resilient crops

New resource will assist future research programs using genetic tools to improve crop resilience and oil production.

University of Georgia researchers are part of an international team that has published the first sunflower genome sequence. This new resource will assist future research programs using genetic tools to improve crop resilience and oil production.

The findings were published in the journal Nature.

Known as an important source of food, sunflower is a global oil crop that shows promise for climate change adaptation because it can maintain stable yields across a wide varie
